[The Chosun Ilbo, April 22 2008] Nokia Phones to Return to Korea

Nokia, the world's leading maker of mobile phones, is reentering the Korean market it once abandoned.

An official at SK Telecom, Korea's largest telecommunications company, said Monday that it is negotiating with Nokia on supplying handsets, and Nokia phones could be on sale in SK Telecom shops by as early as the end of the year.

Nokia's return is likely to cause great upheaval in the domestic mobile phone market, which has been dominated by four big companies: Samsung, LG, Pantech, and Motorola.
